There are divisions within the California Republican Party, and nowhere are they more apparent than among the party’s youngest members. Capitol Weekly spoke to young Republicans on the state GOP convention last weekend in Burlingame. Groups from the Bay Area and Southern California were represented, as well as young Republicans working on campaigns.

CA120: Our online California poll of 1,165 high propensity Republican voters has Trump currently atop the leader board by a comfortable margin. Trump receives 41% of the vote, to Ted Cruz’s 23% and John Kasich’s 21%. A separate sample of 466 Republicans registered since the turn of the New Year has Trump ahead 53%-21%-15%, indicating that Trump’s overall lead among the expected turnout is a few points greater.
